Chris Smalling has taken to Instagram ahead of Manchester United’s clash against West Bromwich Albion.

The Red Devils centre-half has been one of United’s form players in recent weeks and Smalling scooped the club’s player of the month award after an influential October.

While Smalling has helped United keep three successive clean sheets since a 3-0 defeat by Arsenal last month, Louis van Gaal’s side have failed to score in their last two Premier League games.

But the 25-year-old defender is ready to help the Red Devils secure a much-needed win as United look to close the gap on pace-setters Manchester City and Arsenal.

Smalling has made one assist in 11 Premier League appearances for Van Gaal’s side this season.

The United defender has also netted once in four Champions League games for the Red Devils.
